Stories and scientific documentation vary slightly with respect to the behavior of members belonging to the scientifically named “superfamily Muroidea”, more commonly known as rats. In laboratories the rodents can be trained to jump as high as 20 inches, while many exterminators attest to a rat’s ability to leap up to four feet when cornered, commonly believed to result from an instinctive and oversized sense of survival.
A similar sense of self-preservation and adrenaline flow has recently kicked into overdrive in the Oval Office and among its operatives, and it is clear that, very much like rats, the fight for life among this feral group will override its innate sense of decency, presuming it was born with any, because the most foul, gutter-brawling, sluice-slinging, moat and trench water hurling, mud-throwing campaign this country has ever witnessed is about to begin, sure to degrade the election process in a mirror image of how Mr. Obama has debased his office. His record of unfathomable failure precludes him from running on achievement, so he and his hatchet-wielding agents will resort to character assassination, rumor, distortion, lies, and innuendo, and when all that fails they will rely upon complete fabrications to denigrate Mitt Romney and distract voters from the fact that Mr. Obama is a charlatan who champions un-American and anti-American causes.
Friends from foreign countries chide me as to whether Mr. Obama really is our president or merely an actor who plays one on TV, and I assure them he’s more like the used car salesman who stays at a Holiday Inn Express one night and feels capable of performing brain surgery the next day.
It is troubling to witness a man in his fifties, elected to the most powerful and influential office in the world, use the code word “evolving” for the purpose of cadging money from another special interest group whose positions, once again, run contrary to the moral fabric upon which this country was built. Personally, I need more information on this evolving-thing. Is it the result of a correspondence course? Did he divine this direction while napping in the Oval Office with his feet up on the desk, or is he interpreting a message he received in a fortune cookie?
Fortunately, a point has been reached where another avalanche of campaign contributions and another highly polished campaign ad filled with falsehoods will not change the perception among America and her allies that the president’s weak and pliable mind sits atop a spine with the tensile strength of butter, and no amount of marketing or pancake makeup can hide or erase the seditious nature of the statement, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” He admonishes Israel for vowing to protect itself against Iran and terrorist groups bent on its annihilation while his tacit endorsement of radical Islam has allowed it to seize more real estate in North Africa and throughout the Middle East than Hitler and the Axis powers were able to acquire during World War II, then pivots deftly to claim a fast and loose association with Christianity to rationalize an obsession with commandeering corporate profits and gouging high net worth achievers.
Unfortunately, the long overdue realization that the emperor has no clothes has not deterred King Rat and his Colonists, and instead has propelled them to redouble their efforts at misdirection. In no specific order we have proxies suggesting Mr. Romney hates dogs and women. Out on the flank we have the FBI at Eric Holder’s direction “investigating” JP Morgan . Any microphone is still seen as an opportunity to take another whack at oil companies. Trot out the old bromide about the Republicans’ intent to kill Granny and starve the poor. Work the angle about fairness and demonize success. Brag about Bin Laden. Blame Bush. Season the pot of racial discord. Unleash Biden so his idiotic comments clog the news cycle for another 48 hours. Turn the wife loose to talk about nutrition. (tell me that ain’t funny) Taunt Congress. Hit the talk shows, endorse gay marriage, and sneak in another couple rounds of golf. Prevaricate. Equivocate. Pontificate. JUST DON’T LET THE CONVERSATION TURN TO DOUBLING THE NATIONAL DEBT AND HOW FECKLESS FISCAL ACTIONS HAVE PUSHED THE COUNTRY TO NEAR RUINATION!
This is not leadership, nor the work of even a mediocre statesman. There is nothing cogent or cohesive or purposefully planned for the benefit of the country, but there is an unmistakable intent to generate mayhem for the sake of confusion, with the ultimate objective of creating havoc and chaos to such a degree that more government seems like the only plausible solution.
J P Morgan got greedy, acted foolishly, and lost a lot of money recently with a ridiculous derivative strategy, but why bring in the FBI except to create another smoke screen. Stupidity isn’t illegal, so what is there to investigate? Just ask most congressmen. They’ve been getting away with it for years. Information conveniently omitted as the Justice Department grandstands yet again with selective muscle flexing is how much J P Morgan has made in profit that will offset the loss, and on top of that Morgan didn’t squander someone else’s money on, say, something as worthless as Solyndra. They lost their own dough by not quantifying their risk. At this rate what could possibly come next? Dispatching the FBI to investigate losses in Vegas?
Edward Klein’s aptly named book, The Amateur, was released recently. Our country would be in less dire circumstances if Mr. Obama’s presence on the national stage had only been as fleeting as someone trying their luck at Amateur Night at The Apollo Theater, for then we could have just booed him out of the auditorium. Now we must wait until November to see if the rat is lucky enough to get another piece of cheese or if he is finally caught in the self-made trap of his own lies.
